When I checked my email today I received a fabulous suprise - notice that I had won the Mother's Day Sewing Contest over at The Fabric Fairy! My entry is also featured on her blog: The Handmade Muse. I am so wowed & proud! The goal of the contest was to make something fabulous out of fabric from their Mamas Fabric selection & it had to be for yourself. Sounds easy, but as any sewing mom can attest, making stuff for everyone else is usually what you spend most time on - case point, I also ended up making this newborn set of the same tea dot flower fabric:
I really love the dress for me though - it's really comfortable and can be both casual & dressy. As mentioned in my previous post on the dress, the design, The Window Shopping Dress, is just one single cut piece and easily converts to a "non-pregnant" shape just by moving the belt down and then ta-da! A fun, mommy & baby matching ensemble. I really love all the great fabrics at The Fabric Fairy and am so excited to use my winnings on more lovely fabric. Now, deciding on which specific fabrics....that's the hard part!
